, think about bush-cheney and think about obama administration. fbi under bush-cheney, would they have been -- would they have interrogated him? would they have brought him in and spent more time with tamerlan years ago in 2009 when they had his name on the list? when his name popped up on the list would they have gone after them, or was there pc stuff at work where the obama administration says, look, we are not going to go after him right now. he has been cleared. let's not take a look now and let's not follow him. my concern is the treatment of terror under obama is different than the treatment of terror under bush-cheney. obama doesn't want to call it terror. he wants to call it -- i don't know. >> the fort hood one was classified as workplace violence. i don't know if they would claim a do over on that one. greg, you talked about the fbi on saturday when we had our special show. as we have gone over the past two days, even this morning there was something that said that perhaps one of the airlines misspelled one of these characters' names. tsarnaev is not the easiest to spell. i c
there are serious issues regarding interrogation. president obama sent a signal of the administration's intentions last night. >> it's important that we do this right. that's why we have investigations. that's why we relentlessly gather the facts. that's why we have courts. >> meanwhile, his family is condemning and praising the brothers. his mother, in russia, claims they were set up and controlled by the f.b.i. >> i am really sure, like 100% sure that this is a set-up. my two sons are really innocent and i know that my -- neither of them never, never have talked about whatever they're saying about now. >> their uncle in maryland blamed religious extremism. >> religious extremism, whoever was able to brainwash them, a friend of mine, he started being his father. he called me confused. his uncle who always been there. i think -- >> police say after an exchange of gun fire, dzhokhar was captured hiding under a tarp in a boat. thermal images helped police locate the suspect. [ cheers and applause ] the arrest sparked spontaneous appreciation on the streets. >> usa! >> an emotional ceremony of relief
. >> sure, absolutely. >> one of the things that this administration did early on, and the obama administrations continued a lot of the national security policies in the bush administration, to be clear. but they did establish this high value interrogation target group where we've got high value interrogation subjects, and they have a team that they keep very secret and under wraps that they sort of fly in to do, conduct the most important interrogations. and we have been told that they will be leading the interrogation of the boston suspect. how will that team approach interrogating this young man? >> i think they will do it like any fbi agent or any law enforcement individual will do it. these individuals are trained to collect intelligence from detainees. but also on the same time now we have a suspect who already was read his miranda rights. he already have a lawyer present. and i don't think that should affect any trained interrogator, any trained interviewer in doing their job. we have been doing this for many, many years. we did it against terrorist suspects, organized cri
you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very
in fuel efficiency standards under the bush administration, which were increased in the obama administration. so we're producing more and we're using less. and that's why the price of fuel is down a bit. >> all right. makes a lot of sense. fred, good to have you on the program. thanks very much. >> thank you. >> we'll be cheering on your folks here as they ring the closing bell. bill? >> all right. we're coming back a little bit here. the douw was up 151 at the high of the dead, we're up 131 right now. >> apparently, bill, the bias is to the buy side here on the floor. >> good to know. >> we'll see what happens. >>> up next, a thing who knows a thing or two about terrorism. former new york city mayor rudy us what we can learn from the explosions in boston and how to navigate this. yeah, i'm married. does it matter? you'd do that for me? really? yeah, i'd like that. who are you talking to? uh, it's jake from state farm. sounds like a really good deal. jake from state farm at three in the morning. who is this? it's jake from state farm. what are you wearing, jake from state farm
years ago the obama administration said the war on terror was basically over. >> how you define a problem shapes how you address it. as many have noted, the presidents does not describe this as pa war on terrorism. that is because terrorism is but a tactic. a means to an end. >> and how does the establishment media see the boston terror attack? well, listen to bob woodward. >> the boston event, obviously a serious tragedy. but i don't know that it's going to go down in the history books. the question it is not necessarily that big of an event. >> tell that to the guy who lost both his legs. well, in minnesota, democratic congressman keith ellison who is muslim sees the boston attack this way. >> all these cases where you see acts of radicalized individuals using violence, they may have a religious affiliation but oftentimes when they give reasons for why they did what they did, it is politics. and who knows what these individuals' motivation may be. it probably has to do with politics rather than religion. let's not cast a wide net and go after a whole religious group. >> do tho
to handle him as what they describe as an enemy combat talent. the obama administration doesn't use that term anymore it allows for an indefinite detention of someone under national security concerns. that's what they are hoping for. we will see what the justice department decides, they haven't yet. but certainly, this issue will find its way to washington. there are various house and senate committees that have already said they plan to investigate exactly issues leading up to this explosion and then the subsequent manhunt and investigation and surely those concerned about how the administration handles him in the coming days. no surprise that this group has already said that they would like this because they say frankly, this is what it's for. you find a terrorist on u.s. soil, this is how they should be treated. democrats this after the into, some have already turned around and said, look, the administration is doing just fine on this, this san american citizen, he has to be afforded his rights, the justice department is acting a i appropriate. >> adrian, our pete williams is rep
. the legalization if you're an american and overseas and participating -- >> the obama administration has used this legal argument to justify their drone attacks. it's not unfamiliar to them. >> about a year ago or so, the nypd came under fire for some listening in this -- using surveillance techniques on certain groups. >> in new jersey. >> in new jersey. >> right. >> there was a thing going back and forth between new york, new jersey, whether they were allowed to do this or not. with all this going on, aren't we making the case for more of that rather than less of that? >> yeah, we have to do more of it. it's very uncomfortable. it's very -- none of us want to give up any of our privacy, understandable. the reality is this is how you stop them. this is the only way you have to stop them. that is getting the information in advance. they're doing everything they can to hide what they're doing. law enforcement, intelligence agencies, they have to be able to do everything they can to intrude into them to find out what they're doing. >> mayor, as far as i can tell, we knew about nidal malik hasan
they want to. >> this is a matter of policy under the bush and especially the obama administration, connecting jihad holy war and islamists who embrace it and believe it is their god-directed obligation to engage in it with the attacks or terrorism we are supposed to be defending ourselves against has been impermissible. this is crazy and it has created, i think, vulnerabilities as has frankly the lessening of the engagement of the public in this war. you have been talking about it all morning the public helped enormously once those pictures wept up. it's very much the case that we need to have the public on the case all the time. it's kind of a question of are we on a war footing in the face of this jihadist threat. this global jihadist threat or aren't we? unless and until we are, i think we will wind up having a lot moornd worse of these kind of attacks. >> brian: do you believe there are other people involved with these two? >> there were other people involved certainly in providing, i suspect, freezing rain structure, training and support. we need to find them, too. >> brian:
confirmation, so i would think that the obama administration would be thanking the senate for its work to make it easier for any president to get confirmations, and in any event when we're talking about cabinet members, president obama is being better treated than the last three presidents. we are talking about circuit judges. he is better treated than george w. bush. when we're talking about district judges, he is treated a little worse in his first term than george w. bush, but we changed the rules to speed up district judges and the score in the second term, as i have said twice now, obama 13, bush 1, obama way ahead. i like to see confirmations move ahead. i hope i don't hear this much more when the record shows that in fact it's a manufactured crisis. i thank the president and i yield the the presiding officer: without objection. the question is on the torres nomination. all in favor say aye. those opposed, no. the ayes appear to have it. the ayes do have it. the nomination is confirmed. the question is on the watson nomination. is there a sufficient second? there is. the clerk will call
system of justice. >> i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect. >> reporter: and the question of whether the fbi dropped the ball in 2011 when it looked at tamerlan tsarnaev's activity will be the subject of a closed-door briefing on capitol hill later today, when law enforcement officials brief lawmakers. john? >> all right, barbara starr, thanks so much. barbara starr in washington. i want to bring back fran townsend, cnn analyst, former homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. and fran, i want to get your take here. where do you think the investigation stands right now? we've had these initial criminal complaints given dzhokhar tsarnaev. we've seen sort of the case laid out just a little bit. but how about the investigation itself? what are the next steps? >> well, first of all, we know from investigators that they're cooperating with the russians. i talked to sources, federal sources, and the cooperation between russian authorities and the fbi is quite good. both want to understand what they mig
balance that? >> i think the obama administration has done a great job so far in this case in striking that balance. i think they were right to invoke the public safety exception to miranda, which says, hey, if you've got a guy who is a dangerous terrorist, where there may still be attacks that are imminent, where he may have co-conspirators, there may be another bomb out there, you don't have to immediately read the miranda warnings. you can do what any sensible person would do and any sensible police officer would do, first, talk to the guy and make sure there is no other imminent threat. and then i think after they did that initial questioning, they also did the right thing to move him to the civilian criminal justice system. you know, senator graham and others have suggested, oh, no, they should have held him as an enemy combatant, should have held him under the laws of war, i think the experience in the jose padilla case and other cases shows that trying one of these new categories leads to years of legal confusion. >> jenny, let me jump in. just to both of you and we'll wrap this
of president bush and his anti-terror policies. in the days and years since the first strikes, president obama is estimated to have ordered five times as many drone strikes as the bush administration. and although the strikes have been credited with decimating al qaeda, they've also been executed entirely in secret and without judicial oversite. a policy that differs significantly with what the president has told the american people. >> i am not somebody who believes that the president has the authority to do whatever he wants or whatever she wants whenever they want, just under the guise of counterterrorism. >> today's hearings will address proposals to increase their transparency. for a president who voted against the wars in iraq and won the nobel peace prize, his policy on drones have come as a surprise to many. the president's hawkishness has not been universal. that was apparent this week when the president ignored calls from gop hawks to hold a suspect of the boston bombings, dzhokhar tsarnaev, as an enemy combatant and said, dzhokhar, an american citizen. will be given full rights and
, the bill does nothing to improve the metrics that this and the future administration will use to ensure that that the border is truly secure. congress passed a law in 2007 requiring that the 100% or the border be 100% quote-unquote operationally controlled. however, president obama and secretary napolitano abandoned that metrix. the bill before is weakenes current law by only requiring the southern border to be 90% effectively secured. in some sector, only the so-called high risk sectors. what about the other six sectors? then before green card are allocated to those here illegally, the secretary only has to certify that the security plans and fencings are quote-unquote substantially deployed. operational. and completed. if the secretary doesn't do her job, then a commission is created to provide recommendations. this is just a loophole that allows the secretary to neglect doing the job. another area of interest for me is the employment verification measure. as i said before so many times, i was here in 1986 when we for the first time made it illegal for employers to hire undocumented i
